Finally getting round to cataloguing the racks - get in contact if you are desperate for a piece as I *might* be able to locate items now (for those of you that have contacted me in the past). Cheers. TC

Dublin Bus is the one for me on this... heavy Detroit sensibility. Not a fan of the other tracks to be honest.

A - Top Pixel Action... the rhythmic timing and syncopation is tasty. Probably a bugger to mix, but I never do, I just let it run from end to end as the journey is rather nice. Get involved.

Tasty UK techno EP in the Detroit style, but distinctly UK. As per usual, my ears draw me to the B side. For me, the heaviest track on this EP is B2 In Troubled Minds. To me, sounds like it's a paean to B12. No bad thing. I would like to hear more from ... See full review

Serious piece of plastic - shows how the UK owes the harder edge of breakbeat hardcore to our Belgian cousins, and where Belgium borrowed some bleep from the UK - not forgetting nods to Detroit in the percussion on Love OD. An underrated EP.

Jeepers! Almost put this in the SELL pile....I had forgotten about the reason I bought this release - Have a go on B2. For me, the standout mix. Sleazy as hell. Heavy percussive swing. Simple driving 3 tone bassline. The lazy vocals work so well, and I'm ... See full review

Each track holds its own on this EP - each track of Detroit sensibility. From what I am hearing, the YT videos are pitched a fair bit. Hence the kick and subbass is a few tones higher than mid pitch. The stand out track for me is B2 Lost Its Way - ... See full review

All about the B side for me.

B1 has "2am (acid) techno banger" written all over it. Not 'acid techno' in the crusty sense I might add. Not that I'm averse to a dodgy squat (that sounds wrong, but I'll keep it in for shits and giggles). By the way, for ... See full review

Just cataloguing another crate from the racks and came across https://www.discogs.com/Mystique-Fire/release/177346 which sounds suspiciously like the source of the phasing synth from Terminator. What do you reckon?

Surprised there's not more love for this EP. Talk about value for money...this is a DJs dream. A1 is a bleepy-house-vocal jam with a Detroit b-line. A2 is the epitome of jungle tekno. B1 - a driving 4/4 UK hardcore banger. B2 is another jungle tekno cut ... See full review

B2 - X-One-L this is for the headz. Obscure deep and chilled out mid 90s roller that has big nods to the early 90s sounds but skirts the realms of dnb and tech house. Just love it when the 4/4 kicks in now and again. Cheeky jam this.

100% this captures a mid 90s sound, but for me it is less 'deep' and more 'banging 4/4 dancefloor stomper'. Sure, it has some subtleties if you listen hard, but this is a hallmark 2am 1995 London sweatbox stomper. If you were on the floor then, you know ... See full review

I have a SPERM030 Promo which is seemingly the Part 1 of a double 12" Promo pack (the other being SPERM030 Promo2) with each mix of All I Am appearing as a single track on each side of the two 12s, rather than squished in to a 4 track EP.
